    It IS really handy if you get used to the functions of Snap and the apps you use. I didn't realize this, but if you set a certain 'group' of apps in the Switcher, you can shuffle each app to the last used environment just by stabbing your cursor in the upper left corner and commence clicking.
    Apparently the Switcher only holds 9 apps unless that's just a glitch on my end.
    If you have more than one screen, you can do a lot at once.

    I played with it for a bit:Multi-Snap - Edwin000's library
